Fremont County Wait and See
RIVERTON, WYO. (AP) — Fremont County officials have decided not to fill sandbags right now as they prepare for possible flooding.
Local officials are keeping an eye on flood risks after the National Weather Service recently warned the danger is moderate to high.
Fremont County Emergency Management Coordinator Kathi Metzler says if the bags are not needed they become unusable in the future and that wastes money.
The county says it wasted time and effort in 2011 preparing for flooding that never materialized.
